    Panthers win season opener against the Giants

    Charlotte, NC- Pepper Hicks Reporting

    Football season is upon us once again and with that, the Panthers are back on the field. After 2 disappointing seasons a new QB in Matt Moore along with running back stud RB Jonathan Stewart and WR. Steve Smith back, the Panthers are looking to rebound and give the fans something to cheer for.

    With week 1 in full swing, the Panthers traveled up to the New Giants Stadium to take on the New York Football Giants. Weather was rainy but that didn't slow down Deangelo Williams. On the Panthers opening drive Deangelo broke a 61 yard touchdown run to put the Panthers up a score.

    Panthers Defense keep the pressure on Eli to make plays, while shutting down
    Brandon Jacobs early. Panthers stopped the Giants first drive and forced them to punt the ball. With the ball back Panthers decided to try and run it right at the heart of that Giants Defense. Again Deangelo broke loose into the secondary and again went 61 yards to paydirt. I guess it was only fitting that the first game in the new Giants stadium there was 2 61 yard touchdowns. I'm sure Yankee fans at the game got the coincidence.

    Up by 14 the Panthers Defense stimied the Giants and only gave up a FG in the 2nd. The Giants Defense also setted down afterwards and made sure to keep DeAngelo from breaking anymore big runs. At the half the Panthers led 14 to 3.

    In the 2nd half the Giants started to wake up. Their first offensive drive they moved the ball well down the field. They converted some huge 3rd downs and tired the Panthers defense setting them up with their first TD of the game. Ahmad Bradshaw took a toss from 6 yards out and ran in untouched. the Giants pull with in 4, 14 - 10.

    After being held scoreless for about 2 whole quarters, the Panthers on 3rd down found more offense. Matt Moore dumped off a screen pass to Jonathan Stewart and he did the rest going 49 yards to put the Panthers back up by 11.

    With the ball back in the Giants hands Panthers needed a stop but everytime they thought they had them the Giants found away out of it. The Giants put together a painstaking drive that took up 4 minutes but felt more like 30 minutes. The Giants finally broke threw in the beginning of the 4th with Brandon Jacobs pounding over the goal line with a 1 yard TD. After the extra point once again the Panthers lead was only 4 and there was still a whole quarter left to be played.

    The Panthers with a lot of time to kill panthers needed to keep the ball out of Eli's hands. With some huge completions to Rookie WR. Lafell and some dump offs to Tony Fiammetta, the Panthers kept the clock running with first downs. Just like what the Giants did to them the twice in the game, the Panthers kept the drive alive killing almost the whole 4th Quarter. Once in FG range Panthers kept the ball on the ground and was successful at doing so. Once getting to about the 5 yard line the Panthers drive stopped and Kicker John Kasay came in to give the Panthers a 7 point lead with just over 2 minutes left. From 23 yards out Kasay hit the left up right and bounce through. Wait a minute though the Zebras say "NO GOOD" Giants ball.

    On the Giants previous offensive drive DE. Charles Johnson got Carted off and was later found out to be a partial PCL tear and will miss 7 weeks. With out there top Defensive end the Panthers needed someone to step up and make a play. After a big gain in the first couple plays on the Giants drive, Eli had his team around mid-field, put with 3 straight plays of Eli trying to go to his #1 WR Larry Fitzgerald failed Panthers need just 1 more stop. On fourth down Eli tried to go to his other favorite target, Jeremy Shockey but the Panthers D was right there to knock the ball down. Panthers hanged on for the win and start the year off on the right foot.
